John Lewis: Today, young padawans, Grand Master of Ghani Thai Ass Soundz DeadFett and myself, The Sheep-Fucker One, shall provided you your review for The Immortal Iron Fist #1. SPOILERS FOR WHITE MARTIAL ART CHAMPIONS!!! In this issue, young padawans are introduced to two other Iron Fists besides the Friendly Neighborhood Iron-Fist while Iron Fist kicks some Hydra ass Bruce Lee style.This is issue was pretty much a set-up issue to get the reader interested in Danny Rand. As a fan of IF, I was both happy and disappointed. I was happy because it seems that Fraction, Brubaker, and Aja are dead-set on making Iron Fist as great as I think he is. However, I was a bit disappointed as I felt it was a bit too decompressed (or whatever). That said, I think there’s a hell of a lot of potential in this series. What do you think, Grand Master of Thai Ass Soundz?

Tony “DeadFett” Mourlot: I haven’t had too much experience with the Iron Fist character. I picked this up mostly because Ed Brubaker is co-writing. I felt this issue really offered a nice set up for the future as well as giving a good background to the character. I like the idea that there has been many Iron Fists over the course of history. The story had a nice blend of action and character moments for me. I didn’t care for the use of Hydra however. They seem to be the generic group that Marvel writers tend to use as enemies. They just had an appearance in Captain America #24. Also written by Brubaker oddly enough. I still really enjoyed the issue and will pick up the second issue. David Aja’s art felt perfect for the book. His gritty style works good for the subject matter. The action scenes were well done and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed the part with Iron Fist plunging his hands into the heart of the dragon. Anything you’d like to add, Master of the Butt-Tuba?

John: Hell no. I’m done being your review monkey. *pushes chair down and leaves studio crying*

To discuss.
